Oakton Elementary held its annual Geography Bee Final on January 10, 2012. This nationwide contest is sponsored by the National Geographic Society which provides questions (and answers) dealing with cultural and physical regions of the world and physical phenomena. We’re proud of all of our student finalists who actively participated in this challenging competition.
Our School Geography Bee had many difficult questions in several rounds before Devan (5th grade) won with Nick (6th grade) as runner-up. The next level of the competition involves Devan taking a written examination that will be submitted to the National Geographic Society which determines the finalists for the state and national bees. Thank you to Ms. Mulcahy (5th grade teacher) and the Geography Committee for organizing this event! -cg
